Wildflowers #1

Summer is winding down and fall is on its way! Although fall is one of my favorite seasons, we’ve had a lot of rain so far this week and on top of this our first official fall storm of the year. To brighten up this dark and stormy weather, I decided to paint a colorful bouquet of wildflowers.

Step into my studio
My new studio is already one of my favorite places in the house. I can spend hours here visualizing my ideas on a canvas or on the computer.

And… it’s not only my favorite place, my children have discovered this place too!

Back to the wildflowers…  I hope my watercolor studies will brighten up your day!

How to turn a watercolor painting into a graphic illustration?
It’s wonderful to realize how my brain never stops working, it’s always thinking about the next visualization or the next project to create. My eyes are constantly scanning the world and looking for interesting scenes or objects. Right away I saw the potential of these paintings to become a more abstract painting with a graphic look. So I took some photos, imported the images in Adobe Photoshop and applied some filters.

I like the “cutout” look in the color versions below.

In the grey-white versions below, I like the minimal and graphic look.
